Dr. Rayburn's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Rayburn "I was originally born and raised in a small town in Illinois and knew from a very early age that I wanted to be a physician. I started working with a local ambulance company at 15, in the local hospital at 16 and by the time I entered medical school, I had been taking care of patients for over five years. I've continued to enjoy that aspect of medicine non-stop and love the opportunity to get to know people and to help them with their medical needs. I'm married and have four children. I enjoy cooking and photography. My wife and I attend Hunter Street Baptist Church and lead a small group there. "

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rayburn "I believe patients and physicians need to be partners. My job is to educate you on your condition and your choices, and to help you become an active participant in your care. The better you understand what's happening to your body, the better prepared you are to take care of yourself. Ultimately, my goal is to allow you to continue to live and be active as long as possible either by avoiding heart problems, or by managing problems that occur."
